We should take a stroll over to Staples and throw some duct tape over the mouth of Magic's statue. Perhaps he'll get the message.

Ok magic you [expletive]ing would gone on forever about the laker having to trade for dwight howard. He said they had to do anything to get him. Trade bynum and pau for him. We only had to trade bynum and we got him. Now he wants us to trade him in not even a ful season. Magic you may have been a great player but your knowledge of basketball and how everything works with the league is embarrassing. Just shut up. Lakers will get better. Maybe not this season but eventually will. Can't win every year.

Magic's always been a terrible analyst. Nothing very new, just ignore what he says, appreciate his HOF career, and move on.

It is about time someone from Lakers organization told him to shut up.

1- He said if HE was Mark Cuban he did not say that the Lakers should trade Dwight Howard so TC your title is misleading. [expletive] if I was a GM or owner of any team I would call even if he is not on the block.

2- Doubt that a trade would happen in that scenario because they have nothing besides Dirk who is old and maybe Mayo but other than that nothing in that roster.

3- You know damn well Mitch is not trading Dwight and if he did you bet your ass LA would get the best of the trade.

LOL and you think Magic would listen to them? Dude is an analyst. He's gonna continue to run his mouth. No one will stop him. Only thing we can do is start winning and that will shut him up.

I wouldn't trade him to the Mavs because they have no one to offer

but I doubt he's gonna re-sign with us so I wouldn't mind getting a couple first round draft picks plus a few good players for him....not the Mavs though they have nobody to offer

Where would he go? Dallas looks like they are on the verge of completely turning irrelevant with a struggling Nowitzki who is unhappy. Atlanta is on the verge of trading Josh Smith, their only hope of luring Dwight to his hometown.
One thing that the Lakers have over any other team is the proven track record to spend money and build a team around their star players to compete.

It is really not helpfull, when magic goes off like that. Howard is very sensitive to public opinion and when Magic Johnson himself starts to scrutinize him, he might bolt. Good thing he isn't a GM!!!

I want Howard on our team long term as well

but we have to be realistic and realize he will probably leave us the way things are going

He has to realize that the team's struggles are not just about the other 13 guys on the roster. He knows that by him not being 100% healthy so far this season he cannot be the same guy he was in Orlando. Although the guy is putting up great numbers, he is just now beginning to show his true form. I can think of so many reasons why he will stay.

1. It is LA. One of the largest markets in the world.
2. It is the Lakers. A very storied franchise.
3. The Lakers build around star players.
4. They can offer $20 million more than any other team.
5. No other team can offer the same type of talent that we can.
6. Brooklyn really isn't an option for him anymore.
7. His reputation has already taken a huge hit, why would he want to damage it any more by being known as the guy that destroyed the Lakers and ruined Kobe's final seasons?

The list goes on and on.

Hey guys, changed the title of the thread, it was misleading my apologies. Just as some of you pointed out, Magic's statement was about him and what he would do in Cuban's position, not if he were the Lakers organization, my intentions were for you guys to see the ridiculousness of the article and how it was spun.

the last point only pertains to laker fans doubt anyone besides us would be mad at him leaving. People already hate us and they would just say serves the lakers right for trying to buy a title.
